"to our knowledge, he never had canadian citizenship." now, when a senator's staff speak for the senator says "to our knowledge," everything that follows that is a statement that everyone in that senate office knows might have to be quickly revised, and so it has been. the "washington post" is now reporting that ted cruz will renounce his canadian citizenship. cruz said, "now the dallas morning news says that i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that is true, then sure, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada, but i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should be only an american because i was a u.s. citizen at birth, because i left calgary when i was 4, and have lived my entire life since then in the u.s., an

's got no right to be president. the shouts come from the dusty towns of texas all the way to trump tower. he's not eligible to be our country's head of state. that was only the beginning. next came the effort to delegitimize the people who put him in office. can't let that happen again. so the word went forward to three dozen states that the best way to keep future obamas out of the white house is to keep african-americans and young people who don't think that much about race out of the voting booth. a couple more things. got to kill any evidence we ever had an african-american president. got to get that obama care off the books. ted cruz will shut down the u.s. government to get that job done. finally, why not? let's impeach the guy. let's run him out of town on a rail. let's tar and feather him. let's really mess up that record by putting the word into the history books, there was talk of impeachment on his watch, even if they can't find a reason for it, unless it's one big fat reason everyone sees. it's the number on his back, 44. how do way get into the books that this guy really was

of texas in the last five years. roughly one million lost jobs in california. that is amazing. in fact, one of the points that we make, we are writing a book on this, it's the theme right now is one of the great transfers in american history geographically from states like california that don't get it that is notme state a right, and then states like texas, this is one reason to be really bullish on the state of texas. texas and california are the two highest immigration states. one of the interesting things is that texas does a much, much better job in my opinion of economically assimilating immigrants so that they are successful here. of aornia is much more welfare state. it indoctrinates immigrants into the welfare system at a much higher pace than texas does. people come to texas, in my opinion, for jobs. people go to california for welfare. so you are seeing, i think, the differing economic outcomes of a result of this. texas is the model that other states should be in your lading. -- in your lading. -- emulating. >> you can see the entire interview at 5:00 p.m. eastern. later, the sen

, that he had used performance enhancing drugs as a member of the texas rangers when it was not banned. he said since then he has not. >> bill: talking points does not know what alex rodriguez did or did not do. but after the lance armstrong debacle. it is safe to assume that some very powerful american least cheat and again that's unacceptable because american business are paying them an incredible amount of money. and they have a right to expect honest behavior. bottom line on the story is that mr. rodriguez will probably be suspended although major league baseball might cut back the amount of time. but it is an awful situation being played out in front of the nation. and by the way, as somebody who was once a pitcher. throwing a baseball at another player is a serious thing. dempster should not have done it. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, reaction, joining us from north carolina, bernard goldberg n addition doing on factor. is a lifelong yankee fan. what about this? >> well, first of all, major league baseball has every right to expect that its players won't cheat.
, because texas tea party hero, ted cruz, was actually born there. and that made some people ask whether he's eligible to run for president. senator cruz wants to put the whole thing to rest. so he's released his birth certificate. i wonder what people will look for. >> there's one line called place of birth. i'd like to see what he said. >> we can actually see that right here. the place of birth is calgary, in alberta, canada. but legal experts agree, senator cruz is eligible to run for president. since his mother was a u.s. citizen, her son was a citizen from birth. i'm sure that will satisfy everyone. >> you are not allowed to be a president if you're not born in this country. he may not have been born in this country. >> well, that's not what the experts say. but the donald seems pretty sure. what does the right think about this particular document? >> i cannot in good faith report to you that these documents are authentic. >> really? it looks authentic to me. but was this all necessary? did we really need to see the senator's personal papers? >> why are all these people that just ask t

fortune could be between $250 million and $500 million. >>> republican senator ted cruz of texas is dealing with questions with his birth place and whether he's eligible to run for president. he releaseded his birth certificate which shows he was born in alberto, canada. he was renounce canadian citi n citizensh citizenship. >> i was born in canada. my mother is a u.s. citizen. she was born in wilmington. lived most of her life in the u.s.. so i'm a citizen by birth. those are the facts of my birth and i'll let other people worry about the legal consequences. >>> embattled san diego mayor bob filner supporters came out of the woodwork monday. he's supposedly talking about a possible settlement with gloria allr allred. >>> former secretary of state hillary clinton -- that looks like a dog. okay. here is chris christie. reportedly she's against the mini series about her life because it's more likely to hurt than help a presidential campaign. new jersey governor chris christie signed a bill that bars licensed therapists from trying to turn gay teenagers straight. he believes people
on in north carolina and texas, this anti-women's stuff and all this, that is not the way to advertise. this is a national story. the national races are going to get tainted by what's going on in texas and north carolina in terms of the anti-abortion, anti-union, anti-everything. i think the republicans have trouble. they really do. they don't -- the sort of the cooler heads don't seem to have the vision or the willingness to prevail, and if they don't prevail, i do not think nate silver is going to be right. nate silver is usually right, but i think it's going to be tough. >> well, and -- and nate silver is usually right. people in new york think as long as he's predicting democrats are going to win. >> all right. let me just say that gayle collins writes in "the new york times" politics of a screeching halt. she writes in part this, one of the least attractive legacies of barack obama will be the way he empowered freshman senators to believe they were only one or two good speeches away from the presidency. right now the show horses of the united states senate are rand paul of kentuck
